Professional Profile

Jordan Phemister joined Landscape Architecture faculty this July as an Assistant Professor.  She received her MLA from the University of Virginia in 2006 and BA in Environmental Geography from Colgate University in 1999.  She worked for O’Shea + Wilson Siteworks in Charlottesville, Virginia for five years before moving into private practice.  During her 10 years in practice, she worked on a diverse mix of residential gardens; K-12, university, and corporate campuses; and public parks and urban design.  With a background in conservation and passion for the environment, Jordan looks forward to working with her new colleagues and students to explore and demonstrate how design can positively engage with and shape the communities, public spaces, and ecological systems which sustain us all.
